Populist brings you a bite sized round up of the best of Londonist this week. Catch up on the coolest, quirkiest, most recommended and talked about stories and find out what's hot and what's happening for the week ahead.

In the news:

  • Kebabs aren't good for you. No, really.
  • Radical thinking: the constant tube train

    What's hot:

  • Momentary lapses of reason: lady Londonistas go gaga for the kids
  • Silly shop names Eating, drinking and talking at someone's house.
  • Alternative theatrical experiences; 8 short plays in a Hoxton basement and 6 hours of greek tragedy in Dalston.
  • Faded grandeur under your nose: picture palaces of the past.
